My take from another thread at another forum:

There are varying levels of availability and quality...

05-19-66 is available in full at LMA. Jamming isn't really all that compelling though.

07-03-66 is not available and is not listed in the setlist at LMA. There seems to be a lot of confusion about this date.

07-30-66 is available in full and is good quality. Decent jamming, but not all that crunchy. I want more!! Organ sounds good on this one.

11-19-66 has a nice Miller source at LMA. Sounds much more electric than the previous. All the parts are more nuanced, and Jerry's soloing is much-improved. This is one of the better ones for sure.

11-29-66 LMA source only has about 2 minutes of CPW

12-01-66 The tape is too fast (and not very loud) on the versions I found. Makes it hard to evaluate.

03-18-67 Set opener. Great quality. The last CPW ever is a bit shorter than some of the others, but is a really great jam.

I'm not sure which is the best. Probably 11/19/66 or 3/18/67. Too bad they didn't carry this one with them into 68-69, where I'm sure it would have really blossomed.

This old post might be of interest, especially since the forum's own cream-puff-war chimes in.


CPW, along with Omaha and Seven And Seven Is, are my favorite 3 adrenaline/speed/energy-overload tunes from the '60s.
